It is theft. No one has to face the person they take from if they're siiting at home alone in front of a computer screen. If there is an audience recording or even soundboard copies of an official release already in circulation, download or trade that fileset, but the files from the official releases themselves should not be traded or downloaded. It's just wrong. It is the type of behavior that the straight world always expected from us and some are willing to live up to that image.

Why does a portion of the deadhead community have such a sense of entitlement? The band got to where they were through hard work and diligence, but some heads want everything handed to them for free. Get a job, make some money, and then buy all these official releases. They'll sound better if you earn them.

Thanks for the space to rant...

Deadhead Community? Are you kidding me? These thieves charge $$$ to download ICE 9's copyrighted music. We are obligated to report this crooked website...
